Animal Services Center COVID-19 Update

In an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the City has closed the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center to the public until further notice. Although our doors are closed, we can still help!  We are continuing essential services to the communities the Center serves. 

Mission Viejo Animal Services Center is committed to providing the best possible service for the five cities it covers during this difficult time. Dedicated staff will continue to care for the animals, and animal services officers will continue to patrol the communities and respond to stray animals and public safety functions.  Call us at 949-470-3045 or email during normal business hours for assistance.

For Field Services, email to report the following:

  • Stray aggressive animals
  • Animal bites
  • Stray or loose animals
  • Animal cruelty complaints
  • Injured wildlife
  • Deceased animals
  • Nuisance complaints

Pet licensing is available online at and questions can be directed to
